. c-span: i counted 27 different fbi files the you've gotten into in the back that you list. what value have they been to this book and how would they be different, how would the book be different? >> guest: i think they are good primary material part and the invasive wiretaps ra biographical material, and there are many files there but these are the ones in which the basic primary material and fbi material gathered at the ground level tends to be i think very reliable on the people that have been wiretapped like clarence jones who show in these conversations. when it get massaged through the headquarters and put to political use the materials to get distorted but there is nothing better than a verbatim wiretap transfer of somebody's telephone life. that's very revealing and often were showing quite the opposite character of the wiretaps are premised on in the and in fact what you will get is somebody talking about going to jail in the freedom movement and quite the noble character. c-span: how hard is it to get them? >> guest: not hard to get they are in the fbi reading room not
surprise was that j. edgar hoover and his fbi's campaign to destroy king politically, at least, was far more vicious, was far more relentless, and cruel, and i could imagine that public officials in the united states would do. how did i come to that conclusion? after a two or three year battle with the fbi and with my friends in the lbj library, part of the national archives, i was finally able to put together a mosaic of hundreds of fbi memos that went to the president. i saw how the president reacted to them, and didn't react to them. and even though great reporters have covered this story well, starting in '75 with the church hearings, i was appalled about that, and i don't want to be total alarmist, but when i see what the fbi has been empowered to do again, in investigating citizens, i have great pause. >> time for a few more questions. [inaudible] >> i changed my mind on really the central idea of the book. when i started out, a lot of very well-meaning dedicated white house aides and johnson cabinet officials told me that the president despised martin luther king, and why was i d
. there are other suspects that the fbi or both closely following and consulting with partner governments. i think based on my last conversation with the director that was just a few days ago he went to libya and tunisia and believes the investigation is proceeding. they are doing was a fight briefings with certain committees. i don't know about this committee, but i certainly hope that the fbi is able to investigate and identify and hold responsible lowest wage this attack against us and i think that based on their work they feel that they are pursuing some very positive leads. >> my understanding is the person that was held was released by a judge. that person has been released. so you don't know at this point who did it. >> i confirmed with the director who was in the meeting with their high officials that this person is basically under law enforcement surveillance forbidden to leave. the director told me that had been confirmed by him. >> just very briefly, no one has been held accountable or charged with this offense. before gadhafi was taken out, my understanding is the nation had 18 shipmen
to the fbi and when i came to washington, i passed the information to the cia, and ever since, i never even talked to the guy again in my life, and kerry used this individual who had been put in jail for 46 years, into promoting the idea that the vice president knew about it and authorized this type of an operation, and i was involved in getting the money for the contras. actually, i was in el salvador flying at the time when my wife called me, and told me there was a story in the miami herald saying about that, which i told her, "forget about it -- is nothing true to it." but she was very concerned because people doesn't know us and they read this in the paper, and it is very detrimental to you, to your family and your integrity. so i did go and testify in private with senator kerry. it was a very strong hearing and they didn't want to do it in an open hearing at the time, and then it took me well over a year to testify openly, and when they did, which i hoped c-span could cover it, because he made sure that c-span did cover the hearing with meleone rodriguez. and i specifically requested
with the prime minister, among others. fbi agents have had a difficult time working on site in benghazi to analyze the crime scene because of security concerns. the fbi is tapping into facebook like this. people can fill out a form on the fbi's website. meanwhile, libyan officials say they are frustrated because they don't control the area where the attack happened. militants do. and those militants are sympathetic with al qaeda. local leaders are not cooperating. withins are also said to be afraid to talk and key police officers terrified of revenge attacks. >> so zain, has u.s. diplomacy overall changed since the benghazi attack? >> you know, it really has, carol. i was speaking to experts who say the security arm at the state department, known as diplomatic security, has always tried to balance diplomacy on one hand and security on the other. to the extent to which, how can you let officials go out and meet people? since benghazi, there's a lot less people-to-people contact and much more emphasis on security. the other thing, too, analysts say before 9/11, the diplomacy was focused o
that there is an fbi investigation going on, because i personally called the fbi director and i was told that they are making progress and that some things may or may not be right to take place in the not too distant future. >> we work on an ongoing basis so we can get behind and find out what happened and move beyond that. can you make that commitment to me? >> senator, in all fairness we do know what happened is very clear. were you at the briefings with the tapes? >> there was a briefing in the tapes that we all saw those of us that went through which made it crystal clear. we sat for several hours with our intel folks who described precisely what we were seeing. we saw all of the events unfold and we had a very complete and detailed description. >> we know what happened in benghazi because we have the reports. we don't know why we were misled. i'm just looking to make sure that your secretary -- swedes find out what the administration who knew and the american public. >> i don't want the people to be left with this impression when you say why we were misled, that implies an intent to
to the bottom of that? >> for the moment, i know that there is an fbi investigation going on because i personally called the fbi director and was debriefed by him and told that they're making progress, and that some things may or may not be right to take place in the not too distant future. >> i am going based on so we can get that behind us. but we can move beyond that. can you make that commitment to me? >> in all fairness, i do think we know what happened. it is very clear. were you at the briefing with the tapes? >> no. >> there was a briefing with tapes which we all saw which made it crystal clear. we sat for several hours with or intel folks, who described to us precisely what we were seeing. we saw all of the events unfold. we had a very complete and detailed description. >> we would happen now because we have the reports. what we do not know is why we were misled. i am just looking to make sure that you will work with me so that we find of what the administration knew. -- out what the administration knew. >> when you say why we were misled, that implies an intent to actually mi
it on college campuses. it's focusing on the wrong issue. this fbi said that the assault weapon ban of 1994 did nothing to lower crime and does anybody that's watching this broadcast now think that a signed poster that said do not carry your weapon in this area would prevent what happened in sandy hook. and what about the hipaa laws when a professional finds out, what happens. >> and one of the weapons used at sandy hook, bush master, mr-14. before the patent on the m-16 was expired. it was-- >> domestic. but it can fire 45 shots in a minute by squeezing the trigger, this is the problem. it's too easy to kill. >> sean: and i know a lot about guns. let me he throw it to dennis kucinich instead. i'm glad you have a fundamental understanding of the second amendment more so than anybody else on your side so far that i've heard. i'm willing to have an honest discussion, a marksman since i was 11, 12 years old. i understand more than anything about gun safety. my guns are locked up, you can't get to them. we should have ownership in these countries. and we want to stop sandy hooks. don't we have to d
's no reason down the road, i would assume but for the moment i know that there is an f.b.i. investigation going on because i personally called the f.b.i. director and was debriefed by him and told they're making progress and some things may or may not be right to take place in the not too distant future. >> will you work with me, then, i'm going, to get that behind us and find out what actually happened and move beyond that, can you make that commitment to me? >> i think, senator, in all fareness, i think we do know what happened. i think that it is very clear, were you at the briefing with the tapes? >> no. >> well, there was a briefing with tapes which we all saw, those of us who went to it. which made it crystal clear. we sat for several hours with our intel folks who described to us precisely what we were seeing. we saw the events unfold. we had a very complete and detailed description. >> yes, we know what happened in benghazi now because we have reports. what we don't know is why we were misled. i'm just looking to make sure that you as secretary will work with me so we find out wha
about it. i'll tell you this, if so, it's going to be short lived, because i know from talking to the f.b.i. director that they are pursuing that diligently. he was personally just in libya. meeting on this and those efforts are going to continue. and i know that this president -- you know, he doesn't bluff about these kinds of things. he has said they are going to pay a price and said he would go into pakistan if we had evidence to operate on and i'm confident when and if we are prepared, we will execute with respect to finding justice for what happened in benghazi. >> the keystone xl pipeline and senator boxer said, it wouldn't belong before it crossed your desk. a bipartisan group of senators signed on to a letter to president obama requesting that he approve the construction of the pipeline. we are asking that the review process be completed by the end of march and i hope you will be able to comply with that. >> i will try. i need to check in with the legal department and make sure -- i don't want to make a promise that i'm unaware of what can be fulfilled. i can tell you this. it's hap
assume. but for the moment i know there is an fbi investigation going on because i personally called the fbi director and was told they are making progress and that some things may or may not be right to take place. >> so we can get that behind us and find out what actually happened, that we can move on beyond that, can you make that commitment to me? >> in all fairness, i think we do know what happened. were you at the briefing with the tapes? >> no. >> there was a briefing with tapes that we all saw, those of us who went to it that made it crystal clear. we sat for several hours with our intel people to describe exactly what we were seeing. we saw all of the events unfold. we have a complete detailed description. >> we know what happened in been gauzy -- in benghazi because we have the reports. i am making sure that you work with me so we can find out what the administration knew. >> i do not want the american people left with this impression. would you say why we were misled. that implies an intent to mislead you. i think there was a description of a variants and talking points. i
to the fbi. in the meantime, north dakota was in the low range of it's firearm homicide rate. it has among the loosest gun laws in the country. the vice-president is treated -- traveling to richmond, virginia. he'll be joined by former governor and senator tim kane to discuss the obama administration's efforts to reduce gun violence. can -- tim ak -- kaine was the governor of virginia during the shootings at virginia tech back in 2007. also, there was an announcement yesterday by senator dianne feinstein, banning assault weapons. that is available on our web site at c-span.org. pentagon lifting the ban on women in combat. tom in ohio, what are your thoughts on all this? caller: there were some women suing the pentagon over the lack of being able to get into combat. the requirement for combat -- they are using that to be promoted. the good old boy network, if you do not want women to advance, you require combat and you cannot let them go to combat. i think the timing is curious with a lawsuit being in court now. host: thank you for the call. date on the republican line, from new jersey. cal
interviewed the people who were there. instead of saying, no we cannot talk to them because an fbi investigation was going on. host: front page. our next call is an independent from ohio. caller: good morning. i have two. . first, there is no doubt in my mind what happened was muddied for political reasons. if you refuse to associate with a government that plays politics when their allies in the balance of decisions, everybody lies, but the question i asked is who gets the worst results. the second is on the kind of language used in the inquiries. the state department dropped the ball on libya. nobody asked a simple direct question, why did you deny repeated requests for more protection. by giving a tirade, they dilute the force of the simple question. the hardest and most useful question to answer is a simple direct one. host: thank you for calling. a couple of facebook comments. we have plenty more time for your postings and phone calls. we do want to spend a couple of minutes with eight journalists talking about another huge story. it started yesterday and will continue today wi
information has the fbi found on who did this, who these terrorists were specifically? when are we, when can we expect an update how this investigation is going? or is it dead in the water? is nothing actually happening? >> well, we're going to continue to work and i'm going to ask questions of secretary designee kerries because he will continue on with the work there. people still want justice. the president promised justice. when i asked the secretary yesterday was there justice, she said the president has promised and you can trust him to deliver. well, i'm not of the same mind set. i don't trust we'll find the full delivery of justice that the american people want from this president. martha: as john mccain pointed out, two of those four americans died in the final hour of a seven-hour siege. there are really still a lot of questions about why not more was done and who did this. senator barrasso, thank you so much. always good to have you on the show. >> thanks, martha. bill: you wonder now if those answers will ever come public at any point. >>> phil mickelson is one of the greatest gol
